The breakfast at Sunbreak is hands down the best one in the Auburn area and I would put it up against anything in King County. Great food , HUGE portions, and a friendly staff. They have been an Auburn favorite for decades and also donate to numerous charitable causes in the community. Breakfasts aren't cheap, but I guarantee you will... More

The Sun Break Cafe is not open Mondays, as you'll see from the many signs on their building. They want you to know this. This little restaurant is very popular and very expensive, neither of which is justified, in my opinion. It's a lot of food of course but sometimes I'd like to just pay for the one meal I... More

If you're looking for breakfast in Auburn but don't want to go to the cheap chain restaurants, this place will leave your stomach satisfied! Be aware though - the prices seemed REALLY high to me. Service is excellent and quick. The lines may look long sometimes but you'll be seated rather quickly.

This truly is the best breakfast around. Always a line to get in, but worth the wait. The breakfasts come a full-boat or a half-boat (hint: big eaters can maybe finish the full-boat portion) but a half-boat is hard to finish. The banana bread is a must....incredible. Bring your appetite.

We stopped in on a weekday morning with two other couples for breakfast. All of us ordered something different, and all thought it was pretty good, but could have been more flavorful. Service was excellent, prices ok, and even ordering the half portion omelette it was Trump Hugh! Banana bread was very tasty as a side too.

This is close to where I work and a favorite breakfast spot. The portions are huge, sharable easily. Friendly staff. They are only open during morning hours mostly, so be sure to check before heading there.

This place has the best breakfast and best banana bread! It is super crowded on the weekends, but going a weekday morning would be great!

I remember the Sun Break Cafe before they moved... Their food was always excellent! I'm sure some of the items on the menu were still delicious but our table of five found it to be mainly mediocre Kama a little disappointing as we remembered it to be so delicious in the past!

I have been going to Sunbreaks Cafe for between 15 and 20 years. One thing to note. If you go on the weekend you will wait from 10 to 30 minutes. The line is usually out the door but they are very efficient in helping everyone. If it's your first time don't be discouraged if it isn't you already know... More
